The Cayuse Mountain Trail #235 leaves Avalanche Gulch Road at a FS sign and parallels Cayuse Creek on mostly single track with a moderate grade. It then follows the path of a very old double track road that climbs steeply up the side of Cayuse Mountain to reach a saddle, a 4wd-accessible FS trail head, an outstanding view to the East, and the Bilk Mountain Trail.

Incredibly thick brush on lower trail, it is still mostly passable but really not worth it anymore. Only choose this trail if you love adventure...
